Zyrtec-D is a medication used to treat allergy symptoms and sinus congestion. Zyrtec-D is available over the counter in most states, but only by prescription in certain states. Zyrtec-D is a combination drug composed of Cetirizine and Pseudophedrine.

Cetirizine is an antihistamine. Cetirizine is believed to work by blocking the action of histamines (chemicals associated with allergic reactions) in the body. Pseudophedrine is a decongestant. Pseudophedrine is believed to work by causing the blood vessels to constrict, reducing swelling in the sinus passages.
